Oil Pan replacement

I'm new to this forum and spent a little while browsing. With you the amount of knowledge here I was hoping to find some suggestion. I have a 2001 Xterra that I recently pulled the oil pan out only to find my local dealer to have none in stock and 7 people in line when it comes to ordering one. I've tried finding something online with no success. Any suggestions on where I could find a new oil pan that I wouldn't have to wait a month plus to receive? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Fontana Nissan, you can order online, or PM Scott online here, and he'll hook you up.

When doing it I highly highly highly recommend purchasing some FIPG from the local dealership. I would not put an actual gasket in there but I would use the FIPG (Fill In Place Gasket) and do not be conservative when using it.

Thank you for your quick response. The links were very helpful and I now have one ordered. My only hope now is that it's not on back order and if it is not for long. Meanwhile onto my other projects. Timing belt here I come. Thanks again.

The pan in my 2000 6 cyl m/t is rusting out pretty bad and is going to need replacing soon. How difficult a job is it? Looks like the front end needs to be dropped to perform the swap. Anyone have any good advice?

it might be easier to pull the engine than mess with all the front end stuff . easier to get the new pan on change the rear main and add a new clutch if its a stick.

just wanted to bump this thread- ive got a 2004 and the oil pan is rusted out and leaking oil.

how hard a job is it to swap out the oil pan.....it looks like its difficult to get access to with all the steering parts in the way.

my local shop is saying 3.5 hours needed to do the job- i assume its a trivial job to remove 1 part, made complex by having to remove half the front end to do the job!!!!

thanks, Bruce
